Full Text

A pretty autumn wedding was held in St. Andrew's Church on Saturday afternoon, October 11th, at 3:30 o'clock, when Ella Annie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Robertson, Grimsby, became the bride of Gordon A. Corman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Corman, of Burlington. The rector, Rev. E.A. Brooks, performed the ceremony. Mr. Bertram Webster played the wedding music.

Mr. Lorne McGrath, Burlington, was the groomsman, and the ushers were Stanley Corman, Burlington, and Douglas Robertson, Grimsby. Mrs. Blanche Tufford was matron of honour, and Miss Joan Channon, Niagara Falls, was the bridesmaid.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore white nylon satin, embroidered with pink pearls, and floor length veil, caught with headdress of pearls and orange blossoms, and carried starlight and sweetheart roses.

The matron of honour was gowned in yellow organdy, embossed with white flowers. She wore a halo headdress of yellow net, and carried bronze pompom mums. The bridesmaid wore pink organdie embossed with white flowers, and pink net halo headdress. Her flowers were pink gladioli and roses.

Little Miss Gail Hayes, who served as flower girl, wore a pretty frock of medium blue satin, with headdress of blue flowers and veil to match. She carried a swinging hoop of mixed flowers and ribbon.

For the wedding reception, attended by about 70 guests, the home of the bride's parents was prettily decorated with pink streamers and white bells. The bride's mother received in a gown of ice blue wool crepe with corsage of pink carnations. The groom's mother wore green wool crepe with corsage of red roses.

For the wedding trip by motor to Oshawa and Montreal the bride wore a brown and white check suit with corsage of bronze mums, and a beautiful set of furs, the gift of the groom.
